Board rules in favor of country inn

June 07, 1994

The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals has ruled that the Winchester Country Inn at 430 S. Bishop St. in Westminster may provide catering services for banquets, weddings, receptions and other one-day events not open to the public.

The inn, operated by Target Inc., opened in 1986 and has successfully offered catering services occasionally, the board wrote in its decision.

"Winchester Country Inn and the services provided by Target are exceptional and are of great benefit to the public," the board wrote.
